Chocolate Syrup Brownies


I'm still getting my Thanksgiving posts organized and written, so in the meantime, here's a recipe that has nothing to do with the Big Turkey Day!

So back when I made the Cream Puff Dessert, I had to buy chocolate syrup. And I ended up buying ALOT of syrup (darn Buy One, Get One Free!) so I wanted to use it up in a recipe that we would normally make. So when we were in the mood for brownies one night, I purposefully found one with chocolate syrup in it.

Chocolate Syrup Brownies
recipe adapted from allrecipes.com

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
4 eggs
1 (16 ounce) can chocolate syrup
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped nuts (I left out)
1 teaspoon salt

In a large mixing bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add chocolate syrup. Beat in flour, nuts and salt until blended.
Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. x 2-in. baking pan. Bake at 350 degrees F for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean (brownies may appear moist). Cool on a wire rack.

The verdict?
These were good brownies, but I have no idea how they wouldn't be! That much chocolate syrup would make concrete taste chocolaty! The brownies were good, but they weren't fantastic. It was a good use of an ingredient that I wanted to use up, but I don't think I would go straight for this recipe over one of my favorites, like Delicious Brownies.
